Coral Hogfish (Bodianus mesothorax)
25cm rarely seen above 20cm
Suggested minimum aquarium size when adult:
Will eat frozen Plankton, Mysis, Spirulina enriched Brineshrimp, larger specimens will relish live Rivershrimp and whole cockle. Will usually take dry foods too.
Will eat snails, crustaceans, urchins, molluscs etc. Maybe ok with soft corals and large Anemones.
Usually peaceful with similarly sized fish, this is a good fish for the fish only aquarium or that containing other boisterous fish. Don't keep with other Hogfish
When small (3-4cm) Coral Hogfish are dark in colour yellow spots.
For more information ask a member of staff in store.
